Benefits of KB Suitcase Deadlift

The main benefit of the kettlebell suitcase deadlift is building strength in the hinge movement pattern whilst simultaneously engaging the core. This makes it perfect for both athletes and general populations looking to build a well rounded body.

How To Do KB Suitcase Deadlift

  1. Start with the shoulders and hips square with the kettlebell in your hand, a slight bend in the arm and the kettlebell not touching the body.
  2. Bend at the knees and the hips, maintaining an anterior pelvic tilt to allow yourself to move through the hinge pattern.
  3. Move the chest towards the floor and slightly lower the hips as you move through the hinge pattern.
  4. Keep your weight in the mid-foot throughout the movement.
  5. Come back to the starting position, with shoulders square and hips square to finish the repetition.
